“It’s all about the chicken,” Troy Van Bavel, the popular head of the school’s rock-solid FFA program, said Friday in the school’s gymnasium. “We look for the good parts. And it could be anything. I challenge you to do the same.”
Van Bavel, who also teaches agriculture and leadership classes, urged the 52 graduates to take chances and be resilient.
